Advent – in anticipation of Christmas Day

IN many countries, the first Sunday of Advent today marks the start of the Christmas season. On this first of the four Advent Sundays, the first candle of Hope is lighted on the Advent Wreath, to be followed in succeeding Sundays by the candles of Love, Joy, and Peace. The center candle is the Christ candle. It will be lighted on Christmas Day.
